Miriam receives $1.5 million from NIH to 'seek, test and treat' inmates with HIV
Date:11/9/2010

HIV Testing: Although there is a demonstrated link between incarcerated individuals and HIV, little is known about the prevalence of HIV risk behaviors (including injection drug use and unprotected sex) and infection among those on parole or probation. In this study, probationers and parolees from Providence and Baltimore, MD, will randomly receive HIV testing at either the probation/parole office or rapid HIV testing at a community health center. In a separate cohort study, all individuals with HIV identified at community corrections (probation and parole) will be offered enrollment into a one- year intervention study to help improve the connection to HIV care. Josiah Rich, MD, an infectious disease physician at The Miriam Hospital, is co-principal investigator of this study.

  • Improving Linkage to HIV Care Following Release from Incarceration: This study, led by Rich and co-principal investigator Liza Solomon, PhD, from Abt Associates, will focus on improving the link between HIV-positive inmates and HIV care following release from jail or prison. Researchers will design, implement and analyze a monitoring strategy for evaluating follow-up HIV medical care in the community after incarceration. To do so, they will link the new Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program dataset to corrections release data, and then apply this process across multiple states, correctional jurisdictions and care environments. The goal is to gain a better understanding of the elements influencing an inmate's linkage to HIV care in the community in order to improve systems and future interventions.

  • CARE Corrections: Technology for Jail HIV/HCV Testing, Linkage and Care (TLC): Jails and correctional facilities provide a unique opportunity to offer HIV testing and treatment to a high-risk population. However, given the short length of stay in jail incarceration, HIV screening and intervention needs to be conducted both efficiently and cost-effectively. In this study, co-princip
